Ellerman's only had one CITY OF KIMBERLEY and the hoto is correct.

Please do not confuse a Fort with a Victory

FORT PROVIDENCE was built in Canada but was NOT a Victory ship she was a FORT, there were three classes two payed for by the Americans for UK the Oceans and Forts. The Canadians also built the PARKS for their own account. Liberty's and Victory's were built by the Americans for their own account, although some came under the British flag.
The Liberties were introduced at the height of the Battle of the Atlantic with a short expected life span and the Victory's were built for the future
